Ten Things I Wish I'd Known - Before I Went Out Into the Real World


Product Description
Product Details


Two well-known women use their personal experiences to illustrate their advice for productive, contented living. Gymnast Retton was the darling of the 1984 Olympics. She is now a wife and mother of two, roles she puts before her career as a motivational speaker. Journalist Shriver wanted to go into broadcasting ever since she spent time on the campaign trail in 1972. She is now a wife and mother of four, roles she values over her television career. Retton's seven gateways are family, faith, relationships, attitude, discipline, health, and laughter. Shriver's ten "things" were the basis of a commencement address she gave at the College of the Holy Cross. They include pursue your passion, consider no job beneath you, be willing to fail, know the consequences of your behavior, find a mentor, and never forget to laugh. Both authors read their own work. Retton is very earnest in her assertions, but a bubble of a laugh is just under the surface. Shriver's delivery is more polished, reflecting her on-air experience. The autobiographical portions are more interesting than their advice, which is sensible if not original. Purchase where self-help books are popular.ÄNann Blaine Hilyard, Lake Villa Dist.
